Myanmar will face North Korea at home stadium (Thuwunna) in Yangon on 21 November as a second round qualifiers for the 2026 World Cup. The North Korean team arrived in Yangon on 18 November and is taking their training ahead of the qualifiers.
The North Korean team, which will play against team Myanmar, lost to the Syrian team in the first match of the group by 0-1.
In turn, Myanmar faced 0-5 loss to Japan in the previous group match for the qualifiers.
“The game we will play against North Korea will be completely different from the game our team played against team Japan. We will face our opponent with a different approach. We will play in a different style, not in a defensive style like the game against the Japanese team. We will try to get points from North Korea. This is our hope,” said Myanmar head coach Michael Feichtenbeiner.
The Myanmar vs North Korea match will begin at 4:00 pm Myanmar Standard Time and tickets are priced as K5,000 for grand stand and K2,000 for ordinary stand, according to the Myanmar Football Federation.
